Another design that was done ages ago, but only saw the light of day recently so thought I'd put it up here. Power Pellut play music that is a "cursory tip of the hat to Unsane, Melvins, Black Sabbath, the Jesus Lizard, and Merzbow", according to I'm Better Than Everyone Records who put this out.
The tunes I heard seemed to have a fairly grimy, almost "garage" feeling to them and I deliberately went for a more "Kozik" rock poster vibe for want of a better description. I had a load of old retro vinyl / hi-fi adverts that'd I'd collected over time - some of these featured beautiful Asian girls in different traditional costumes showing off records and stereo equipment. This was the inspiration for the melting Geisha girl on the front cover - the large moth here replacing the large bow that usually adorns the back of the costume. The "retro" hi-fi vibe was continued on the insert also. Not sure when I decided to depict the amorous flies on the rear cover, but it seemed apt...
IBTE are a vinyl only label, aiming to "rekindle the beauty of the almighty riff in its intended format: needle against groove, analog trumping digital." Some great vinyl versions of older classics seeing the light of day here - all releases are strictly limited with great pressings and printing so will definitely appeal to the vinyl junkies out there.
